A 35-year-old farmer from Arakkonam was hacked to death in Vandalur, where he had gone to attend a wedding ceremony on Sunday. The deceased identified as Haridas, was attacked with weapons by a bike-borne four-member gang, when he was standing out the wedding hall near Vandalur flyover. Haridas died on the spot. He is survived by wife Nandini and two children. While a few tried to catch the murderers, they managed to escape. Guduvancheri police, who are investigating the murder, suspect that previous enmity with locals could be the cause. Tension prevailed in the area after the incident. This is the third murder in the region in the last four days.
